Comments

The Walking L Ranch remains to be one of the last operating cattle ranches headquartered right in Wickenburg.  Wickenburg, once known as the dude ranch capital of the world, is well known throughout the world as a team roping and horse enthusiast destination during the winter.  Current ownership has done a magnificent job in maintaining and improving the ranch affording a new owner the chance to step right into this turnkey ranch.  Whether as a continued cattle ranch or other uses such as an executive retreat– you will not find too many ranches around like the Walking L.
